Here the mild wood toast frames the otherwise ripe and fresh aromas of black cherry, earth and oak spice notes. There is a seductive mouth feel to the vibrant and nicely detailed middle weight flavors that exude a fine minerality on the ever-so-mildly austere and persistent finish. This is really quite good and would make a fine choice for an all-around house red that could be enjoyed young but should repay a few years of cellar time too.
The 2012 Marsannay Village comes from several parcels from within the appellation raised in 40% new wood. That new oak is nicely assimilated on the nose, barely noticeable in fact, with clean and ripe raspberry, red cherry and fresh strawberry scents, hints of forest floor emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a succulent entry, good weight and a smooth mouth-feel. Here, the new oak does make an impression, rending the finish just a little high-toned, although it will appease those seeking a more modern take of Marsannay.
